Swing Stage Scaffold

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

This shows the old fashioned rope stirrup rigging. The scaffold as a whole consists of a platform twenty inches wide and from ten to twenty feet long. (This platform is an especially strong ladder with planks secured to the rungs.) Cross bars, the timbers under the platform constitute the lower part of the stirrups. They have roller wheels in the ends which are in contact with the building. Then there are the rope stirrups which fasten the cross bars to the lower block as shown in the picture. The falls (pulley blocks and ropes) and the cornice hooks complete the scaffold.
